Hi folks,                                       Thursday (16 March 2006)

For formal 'Call For Objections' under the PWG Process/2.0, I've just
posted a sixth draft of the PWG CIM Printing Refresh spec on the PWG FTP
server at:

    ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/wd/wd-wimscimprint10-20060316.htm

The only change is to modify the Description of CIM_Printer class:

[old]
   [Version ( "2.10.0" ), Description (
       "Capabilities and management of the Printer LogicalDevice.")]

[new]
   [Version ( "2.12.0" ), Description (
       "Capabilities and management of the Printer LogicalDevice. "
       "The ABNF for CIM references to PWG Standards and MIBs is "
       "in the directory 'ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/general/process' "
       "in the file 'pwg-cim-references-format-20060309.txt'. "
       "An example for a MappingStrings reference to a PWG Standard "
       "is 'PWG5101-1.PWG|Section 4 Media Color Names'. "
       "An example for a MappingStrings reference to a PWG MIB "
       "is 'MIB.PWG|PWG-IMAGING-COUNTER-MIB.icMonitorCompletedJobs'.")]

And the ABNF is indeed now posted to the PWG Process directory.

Cheers,
- Ira
